I feel that way too. I get mad when she cries and I feel horrible for feeling that way. I am trying to just do my best but I am going to see a doctor. If you feel like it's bad enough you should see one too. I heard it helps.

How do you know if you have PPD?

When I got pregnant, my ex left and I have been a single mom since I was two months pregnant. I had my son in september 2011 and I felt so happy. I wasn't depressed, I wasn't sad, I didn't get frusterated or anything. This past month, every day has been a struggle. Not with him though, I am ONLY happy when I am near my son. I can barely sleep or eat anymore, i feel so overwhelmed about everything in life, I feel like I am such a terrible mom and that my son would have been better off if I did adoption even though it would have KILLED me to do that. I cant focus on anything, I don't go out anymore. I just dont know what is wrong with me. Is it even possible to get PPD months after you had your baby??

I didn't feel any symptoms of PPD until I was 4 months PP. Now that I'm 6 months PP its been unbearable. Today was the first day that I woke up and felt like I could not take care of my son. I called my husband at work crying and he came home, made me a doctors appointment, and took me to a doctor. I felt like such a worthless person having to go to the doctor for being mental.
The doctor perscriped me Xanex for my anxiety attacks and Celexa for my depression. They drew blood to check my thyroid and for anemia.
I was also given a referal for counceling if i feel like I need it.
I REALLY didn't want to go to the doctor but I feel much more optomistic now that I have help. I don't know how the medication is going to work out but I know that getting help is a step in the right direction. If I can do it. You can too.

Hi, I'm been having this issue for a couple of months now... I'm 30 wks (first time mommy) and was really undecided bout treating it with antidepression pills... My Dr. prescribed me zoloft and after taking it for a couple of days I stopped it right away because I was feeling like a zombie... and reading that it has birth defects and etc.. I got scared... I really don't wanna even go back to them... I'm just scared that ill start acting worse after I have the baby... Can anyone give me some advice, that can help me without taking medication?

I have been feeling different, thought it might be the baby blues. but im still feeling horrible and its been 2 weeks. i took a test online to see what i scored and i got a 22. i have tried talking to my husband and he didnt even seem interested in what i had to say. i keep telling myself that i cant have ppd. i have too much on my plate and my children need me. i really dont have much help. husband works 16 hrs a day and when he gets home he is tired. he tries to help but not much as i like. i have 3 kids...5, 2, & 1 month. i just dont know what to do. but all i know is i didnt sign up for this...

This is my 2nd pregnancy. During my 1st pregnancy I had found out my Fiance was cheating on me, and it wasnt the first time, so I left him and moved in with my Mom. About 2 months before my son turned 1 I started dating my husband. About a month later we became pregnant, and just 4 months later we got married. My problem is...I am a very possitive and happy person, and I love my husband so much, but with this pregnancy I find myself bothered by him. Just the sight of him sometimes makes me angry. Is there something wrong with me? Because I was not living with my EX most of my 1st pregnancy I never felt like this. And I know I suffered from PPD after my son was born, because I had a hard time letting my EX take my son. I just dont know what to do? Im against taking any sort of drug for depression, because it just an imbalance of hormones so taking the right vitamins im back to my happy self again. I just dont know how to deal with my husband. I love him so much, but I cant help but feel irritated by him. Is this a normal feeling? And is there anything I can do to make it not so dominatnt?

Messiah of the just did a spell for me, and I have full faith it worked. I have peace and security in my home life and my marriage is secure, I couldn't do it on my own but Messiah resolved it for me. Don't let the rates fool you messiah is reasonable because he wants to make his help attainable to everyone who needs him. He takes a personal interest in his clients his clients not about ripping them off. He returns E-Mails promptly answers questions and is supportive, He lets you know what he

i just had my first baby a little over a week ago. im depressed...i feel awful about it..i feel like i shouldnt be depressed even tho i know alot of women go through it. i told my doctor and she brushed it off for now...said see how i feel in two weeks. i love my baby with all my heart...she is my heart. but i wasnt really ready to give up some many things to become a mom a only 22. not to sound selfish. i got super excited the end of my pregnancy and was so ready for her to be here. i had a c section...i hate the way my body looks and fear ill never get it back. i see all these other girls who did it vaginal and they have their bodies back in 2 weeks. so im not happy with myself. i cry all the time. and im so tired from the feedings. i cry when my fiance goes to work everyday. i fill trapped sometimes. yet i feel worse for feeling this way

I had my son almost three months ago and I suddenly feel so incompetent. I feel as if I'm not doing a good job in taking care of my son even though I know I am. I am in such a zombie like state that I don't even know what day it is. Being a single mother is really weighing on me. I'm afraid to console in my mother due to the fact that she'll think I'm a bad mother. I don't think she's even going to take me seriously. I am way too over emotional over everything. It just seems like everything is just piling up. I'm scared I have too much on my plate to start school in less than a month. How can I focus on school out of all things? I need to get out of the house and spend a day alone.

I had my baby boy on June 30th via c section. I have felt with anxiety before I was pregnant almost daily, but during pregnancy I only had it 1 day that I can remember. Now, after having the baby it just hit me like a ton of bricks and to top it off my baby has colic and screams his head off most of the day. Thank god he sleeps through the night though!! I took Zoloft before getting pregnant I took it during and still taking it now. Just called about counseling today and will meet with her tomorrow. I hate anxiety!!
